Uh…good news? I’ll post a reminder if we ever get a big snowstorm again.
“Drivers can now enroll in a new service offered by the DC Department of Public Works (DPW) to receive electronic notifications if their vehicle has been booted, towed, or relocated in the District.
More than 50,000 vehicles are affected by towing and booting services in the District each year. Currently drivers can call the DPW’s towed vehicle locater hotline to determine where to retrieve a towed or relocated vehicle.
The new Tow and Boot Alert System will notify enrolled drivers if a boot has been installed on, or removed from, their vehicle, or if it has been towed or relocated by DPW or a company working on its behalf.
“DPW is employing technology in a number of ways to increase the quality of service we deliver,” said DPW Director Christopher Shorter. “Drivers will now receive near instant notifications about the status of their booted or towed vehicle through the new Tow and Boot Alert System.”
Drivers can register their vehicle into the system by visiting www.dpw.dc.gov”
